IEC 61850 ICD Designer
The ICD Designer is a state-of-the-art software tool to configure and model IEC 61850 client and server enabled products. It has unique capabilities for updating and manipulating SCL, CID and ICD files with an intuitive, user-friendly interface.
Our latest release not only offers multi-platform support but also retains the same look and feel as our previous versions, with some important updates and useful additions.
The biggest highlight of the ICD Designer is its capability to create IEC 61850 standard compliant SCL files with full support for Edition 1, Edition 2 and Edition 2 (2007B) templates. In addition, the ICD Designer boasts a new feature that permits the user to conveniently customise and import templates.
ICD Designer is the recommended configuration tool for SystemCORP’s IEC 61850 Protocol Stack and has already been used with a large number of various customer applications and devices.
Create your own IEC 61850 configuration files using IEC 61850 Logical Devices (LDs) and Logical Nodes (LNs).
There are over 300 Logical Nodes defined in IEC 61850. With the new “Template Customiser” feature you can create Customised Logical Node Templates specifically for your product design. Customised logical node templates increase the user friendly appearance of the ICD Designer to the user and makes the IEC 61850 configuration process easier.

- Fix some graphical errors that could occur randomly
- Correct setting Enum values in the SCL file
- Add ‘owner’, original SCL flags, and Engineering right to IED nodes
- Add ‘LDName’ configuration to LDevice — a short name reference
- Add ‘ConfLdName’ to services
- Set default services values to support many basic requirements
- Added a ‘Reload tree’ option to force a recalculation of the tree in case of display errors
- Allow customised logical nodes to share names with existing LNs. All DOs in the custom node will be merged (added) to the existing LN
- Do not overwrite the custom user-defined logical nodes when installing a new version of ICD Designer
- Improve handling of unknown Private field types
- Adjust executable settings to improve flexibility
- Bug fix to use the correct custom templates path
- Add additional OpMod— DOs to the DOPM Logical node
- Add new DOs on the DRCT Logical node
- When adding new “mag” DAs, automatically select the default “f”
- Add “Move up” and “Move down” to logical devices, and many other nodes.
- Rename new logical devices from “New Logical Device” to “NewLogicalDevice” so it is a valid name.
- Rename other new node templates to be valid initial names
- Add new DOs to the DRCT logical node: WMax through to VArAct.
- Maintain custom enumeration definitions in files when selecting a new Edition template
- Added control number to APC (analogue point control) CDCs for SBOw, Oper and Cancel
- Use a common path for all PC users’ ICD Designer settings. This means regular users will be able to use the files set up by the installer when it installed under a different administrator user account.
- Correct data type of ctlVal in common data class “APC” to use AnalogValue, instead of INT32
- Add support for access point P type=”C37-118-IP-Port”
- Correct validation of IPv6 subnet mask to use “/0” to “/127”, instead of an IPv6 IP address
- Add support for SystemCORP control block ID private fields

- Correct enumeration values of AutoRecStKind
- Only output DBPos as an enumeration value in Edition 1
- Added a default “Val” when adding values to Booleans (“false”)
- Add “configRev” to LLN0$NamPlt in the default new project and when adding new IEDs, as configRev is mandatory for LLN0

- In the Add DO menu, allow the drop-down menu to expand with the size of the window
- Allow descriptions of drop-down menu items to expand while the item remains a fixed size
- Add tooltip on two-column drop down menus, matching the description of the item. This makes it easier to read when the current window size is too small to fit the complete description
